E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

it seemed to be working fine before but i dont know what got installed that it started showing so many errors.

The other solutions already provided for this issue dont work for me as I am behind an authenticated proxy server. my ip is 172.31.77.59, my dns servers are 172.31.100.8 and 172.31.100.9 and my proxy server is 172.31.100.29

i searched some commands. the ouptput of cat /etc/network/interfaces is

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback 

maybe that helps in solving the problem

Have you tried this askubuntu.com/questions/199541/… –  thefourtheye May 4 '13 at 6:31
    
yeah i did go through that but i am behind a authenticated proxy server so cant select automatic addresses only –  Tilak Raj Singh May 4 '13 at 6:55
    
Include that also in your question. People might downvote and close the question as duplicate –  thefourtheye May 4 '13 at 6:56
